I was a bit surprised that there wasn't some sort of call out for me on friday night- but then I don't work in an area where a lot of the victims were taken. We hear these helicopters buzzing over all the time- I suppose now there will be a big debate about the use of helicopters in city areas.
Hope no one on here is directly affected by the events.
On a lighter note...........annoyingly, the Clyde stride has been moved to 1 week before Loch Ness ( CS has to move due to the games in Glasgow). Which should I do?
Mrs Mac- I think the problem that takes a while to settle, even after pain/ swelling has gone, is proprioception- so once you are fit to exericse, it might be helpful to use wobble- board type exercises, and also try some taping around the ankle to help that aspect- trail running is going to be pretty difficult for a while. Hope you are on the mend soon.
Gradually building the miles here- have managed bot ha 10 miler mid week, and 15 today, and my mileage for november is the best on record- just hope the weather allows me to keep it up over the middle of winter...........I really didn't run enough miles last year to make the most of my ultra races, so if I can get to next spring with at good base, I'll be a lot happier.
The ASR is the trail version of the GTS but just a bit more grippy- I like it for slightly muddy cycle paths, or when the pavements are a bit slippy, but I generally use them interchangeably with road shoes. I don't think they would be good for more rough terrain.
